Au programme

I've been jazz clubbing nightly for 24 years, and haven't discovered anything that comes close to the incredible spirit found in certain Harlem nightclubs and outdoor neighborhood jazz events. I'll take you right to the heart of that intimate scene.

As we walk from show to show, I'll point out and delve into the historically significant sites and strikingly beautiful homes of Harlem. We will also make sure to stop by the world famous Apollo Theater, and discuss the evolution of jazz from dixieland through bebop.

I'll introduce you to everyone we meet, and you'll immediately feel immersed in the Harlem jazz scene and relaxed in your surroundings. Amazing meals will be available during the sets so bring an appetite. (Please note: Refreshments are not included in the ticket price).

- Visit two specially selected hidden jazz shows with an expert insider
- See the sites and learn the stories of Harlem's jazz history
- Great food/drinks available along our route.
- Get a chance to join the jam if you're a performer.

- Great for Teams.

Hi I'm Gordon, a third generation New Yorker.

I've always felt most at home in jazz joints. That's where my people are - the players and the fans; they've inspired me my whole working life:

- I've owned a jazz club in Harlem
- Managed musicians
- Had my jazz photos and articles in major publications
- Been awarded a Proclamation from New York State

For over two decades, I've been designing and leading immersive jazz crawls through NY's underground scene as the owner of Big Apple Jazz Tours.
We're a small operation but ranked # 1 in Nightlife on TripAdvisor in New York City.

My co-hosts are the lovely:
Amanda, a Harlem jazz singer loved by all; and
Margot, a trusted colleague of Dizzy Gillespie.

We know our way around all the underground joints, so join me, Amanda, or Margot as we head deep into that scene.

Le lieu

In these unusual times, our itinerary will depend on where the live music shows are starting to happen again in Harlem. Every night can be different. Lately, we can count on music being performed in certain clubs, hidden locals-only jazz haunts, and in scenic neighborhood parks. We'll go where the action is, and take in the hip and historic sites along the way.

I went on this tour for my boyfriend’s birthday and it is an experience he will never forget. Gordon has been involved in the NYC jazz scene for over 20 years and it shows. This isn’t a tour the just checks off the most popular boxes but one where you really become immersed in the jazz scene. Gordon took us to places I NEVER would have found on my own. This is an amazing experience I definitely recommend to anyone interested in jazz

Gordon is a terrific host and an encyclopedia of all things jazz! What I appreciated most is his love and passion for the community. As we ran into other people who knew him, they embraced not only him but us along the way making the experience not only fun, but personal and welcoming. What an amazing neighborhood; great people, great music! I'd love to go again and highly recommend this tour.

I don't like to be the one to break the perfect review streak, but I travel a lot and reviews are how I navigate so, here it goes. Gordon was professional, kind, responsive and communicative.  He also owned a jazz club for a couple of  years and had some interesting insight. This is a post covid review so, obviously a lot has changed. I understand that. With that being said, was the tour worth $85? No. Was it worth $99 on his website? No. In fact it bothers me he charges different amounts on different sites, especially given Airbnb takes 20%. Makes no sense. My experience was not a jazz crawl. It was an outdoor event for almost two hours ( I was never told I would have no access to water/beverages or real bathrooms,  only disgusting porta potties) and then ...after a very long walk.... a small gathering of locals playing jazz at a small establishment.  Everyone was kind and friendly. Obviously knew Gordon and are a part of his business.  But when you charge me $85 or $99 I expect jazz clubs. I am very sorry that covid has destroyed so much, including the jazz scene in Harlem, but it's not fair to run a tour and charge people without delivering what is promised.  I was disappointed. I could have watched the outdoor event without any guidance from this tour.

This has been a great experience for me for the one who's not a regular jazz listener. It's a blend of the history of jazz, walking down the streets in Harlem, where it all started and, of course, listening to live jazz bands. You'll enjoy the atmosphere and music altogether.

Amanda will keep you guessing and engaged as you take a beautiful walk through Harlem. She keeps you up to date and current on events while diving into the past of Jazz History. Harlem is a rich area to work with historically and she keeps up. Amanda is not for the faint of heart, step up and be brave as she shows you how it’s done.

This is my second time going with Amanda. She is a great tour guide, and she shows you a tour of former jazz spots that were once there in Harlem along with locations where legendary performers lived and walked in the streets of Harlem. I am looking forward to going there again with a friend who is paying a visit to the city!
